You can pay by your card

You can pay now by BACS

But whatever you spend

Remember the Tax!


You buy and you pay

You sell and pay more

Trying so hard

To push debt from your door.


Tax in this time of

ongoing recessions

Drives all of us to sell 

 prized possessions


Even then you find

On Amazon or Ebay

The fees are so high

The gains slip away.


But then I suppose that

Although this restraint

We have food and shelter

No need for complaint!
